Posted on 07/06/2012 2:39:06 PM PDT by Seizethecarp
He was especially interested in talking about President Obama, and why Freeman thinks he should not be called America's first black president.
"First thing that always pops into my head regarding our president is that all of the people who are setting up this barrier for him ... they just conveniently forget that Barack had a mama, and she was white very white American, Kansas, middle of America," Freeman said. "There was no argument about who he is or what he is. America's first black president hasn't arisen yet. He's not America's first black president he's America's first mixed-race president."
Many of Freeman's films explore important chapters of African-American history: Amistad was about the trans-Atlantic slave trade; Driving Miss Daisy was set in the civil rights era; and Glory centered on an all-black regiment in the Civil War.

Fine. If we must apply labels, then someone get Allen West to satisfy their requirements.
So are the libs going to call Morgan Freeman a racist? I wanna see some red on red damnit!
As far as I know, they all come from two black parents. How would that suit you, Morgan?
Disowned by black folks now? Poor Barry. I think that since his baby daddy was Malcolm X, he should be, I dont know , what ? 5/8 black?
Moran Freeman said he would vote for Obozo, ‘If I Could Vote for Him 1000 Times, I Would’, I use to like this nitwit.
See also Chris Matthews convoluted take:
If theres one person who can always be trusted to delicately handle the subject of President Obamas race, its Chris Matthews. And on his show today, he proved how nuanced and restrained he can be on this topic by saying that in 2008, Obama was positioning himself as more of a white candidate with references to his immigrant roots, and how that meant he was walking back being black in that race.
The subject of the segment was how Obamas racial identity has shaped his personal and political life. The Washington Posts David Maraniss explained that since Obama is only half-white and half-black, white America just really wants to know why he identifies as black. Matthews helpfully observed that throughout American history, if youre one drop black, youll become black.
Matthews highlighted a section in Maraniss book about the president where Obama once told an old girlfriend he was an imposter because while identifying as black, he was so white [and] there was hardly a black bone in his body. Maraniss explained when Obama was in New York for a few years, he really didnt make any black friends. Matthews then turned to the 2008 election and how Obama seemingly did sort of a racial double-take in that race.
I’ve said that all along. He’s mulatto, damit!.
A lot of racist white folk voted for the mulotto thinking
he would actually help the black and whites unite.
Boy were they wrong.
How many blacks even think of his very white whacked out mamma...or equate his black side as being pure Muslim.
And ya know what DH Freeman......After what this mixed ass clown and his merry band of Marxists have pulled, you’ll never ever see the rise of your 1st black President....So get over it......
So they don’t want to claim this one either? I can understand.
So they have disowned Bill Clinton. He feels their pain and to be honest he actually seems more black to me than the intellectual commie Obama.
Why, EVERYBODY knows, that Bill Clinton was the first black President. He said so himself.
Just because ol’ Billie Jeff was a little challenged in the melanin department, shouldn’t be anything to hold against him. What the heck, he MIGHT be an albino.
I used to like him, as an actor, too. Nice voice.
I wouldn’t pay $$$ to see this dumbard or any of his Leftist actor friends ever again.
Moron Freeman, buh-bye. Nobody, except you racist, Liberal arseholes ever cared about Barry’s breeding background.
“He’s not America’s first black president he’s America’s first mixed-race president”.
Better not tell that to the 95% of the black population who voted for Obama because he was black.
He’s half black, half white and all red. Marxist bastard!
99% of American blacks are mixed race but his momma was no ordinary midwest girl.
That remind me of the old kid’s riddle: What’s black and white and red all over?
Go back through Morgan Freeman’s past. I guarantee you he’s not what he demands others to be. Besides, his and other’s exclusive focus on race is laughable. If they, for one second, imagine themselves, somehow, because of their race, to be “African,” they are some of the most deluded people on the face of the earth. In Africa there is no generic African—everybody’s a member of a tribe and/or language group. That has a higher priority in day-to-day life than melanin content. And black Africans laugh at black Americans dressed up in their dashikis and cowry shell necklaces and other Africanoid clothing thinking they are “celebrating their heritage.” They know that black Americans are WAY more American in their attitudes and outlook on life than they could ever be African.
Most blacks in the US are mixed-race, to some degree, including Morgan Freeman. Just compare pictures of actual Africans from West Africa, versus “African Americans”.
Knowing Morgan Freeman from previous news reports, it raised my blood pressure really rise when the Independence Day church service had a patriotic film narrated by ... MF?!?!? Yes I know that the media has a love affair with deep melodious voices from Paul Robeson on. What would Darth Vader have been without James Earl Jones voicing his lines? Now I would like to watch the science channel program, “Through the Wormhole” but since it is narrated by MF, I find it easy to skip. YUCK this idiot!
How many people saw the Skip Gates Project on PBS where they took blood and DNA samples from many black folks and then proved to a lot if them that they had no identifiable history with slave ancestors. Morgan Freeman is descended from slaves but you should have seen for instance Maya Angelou’s face when Gates told her she was like more white than African and her ancestors all came here from Trinidad. LOL
Morgan’s words ring of racism to me. Looking for someone of a certain racial purity should have gone out with the search for pure “Aryans” of some decades ago.
This is huge!
Let it start.
The left blacks will abandon him...I’ve been saying to other blacks that he has no slavery blood in him and they have permission to abandon him and there’s always defensiveness...
Freeman saying this is just the beginning...
That this fool would be allowed in the public eye is in itself a disgrace.
Taking anything he says seriously is a travesty.
she was red ... not white
This “racial purity” crap our black brothers and sisters learned at the knee of their supposed political party heroes like racist Woodrow Wilson and Margaret Sanger of Eugenics fame. “Progressives” / “Liberals” same horse different rider. Which political party is the home of the Klan?
He's not the descendant of slaves, he's the descendant of slave sellers.
...does Morgan want his nuts too?
I know. Why do they have to let words leave their mouths outside of the movies? It always ruins it.
try 4/8 white,3/8 Arab slave trader, and 1/8 black
> Go back through Morgan Freemans past. I guarantee you
> hes not what he demands others to be. . . .
Started to do just that and came up with this (unrelated to the current issue of race but indicative of the pressures he must be under):

Jackson have dissed her in a recent online video while
bragging about their own porno movies. . . .
***MORGAN FREEMAN MARRIED HIS GRANDDAUGHTER, BTW....****
He’s right. I get so annoyed with the whole “first black President” business. So many people voted for him just because he was “black.” He’s not black.
“First thing that always pops into my head regarding our president is that all of the people who are setting up this barrier for him ... they just conveniently forget that Barack had a mama, and she was white very white American, Kansas, middle of America,” Freeman said.
Lucky for him that he did have a WHITE Mama very white American, Kansas. Now I will ask you to consider something. It’s what I call “Where would they be?” It’s kind of like follow the money when seeking out Democrats and corruption.
Where would Barack Hussein Obama be? If he had not had a white Mama. And especially if he had not had a white Grandfather and Grandmother. Who else would have raised him his mother seems to have been out of the picture as far as being responsible for raising her child. Maybe she picked up this trait during the time she spent with his womanizing philandering baby making daddy who by all accounts was some kind of international playboy. And who disappeared from the picture shortly after his birth. That is of course if he was really Baracks father. Most black men do not know their fathers or actually who their fathers are. So now we must ask where would he be? He would most likely have been raised on the welfare and food stamp system. Lived in Government housing and spent his free time (every hour of his life) playing basketball on the gubmint playground, drinking, gang banging, and getting high in the hood. He would not have gotten an education in the countrys finest colleges or gotten a law degree. He might even have wound up in prison. Just take a moment and think about it all if not for his wealthy white Grandfather. Where would He be?
As far as I’m concerned, Freeman can take his “gravitas” and shove it. He’s just another racist black man seeking revenge on Whitey.
We bin down di rode b4.
Many of the race hustlers said years back that Barack was not black enough.
As if Moron Freeman won’t donate big time to Obama this time?

Liberal Actor Morgan Freeman Calls Tea Party Racist, Herman Cain Slams Back (video)
Posted By Vicki McClure Davidson on September 25, 2011
BLACK AND NOT A DEMOCRAT
He looks to be of mixed heritage himself.
Tim Robbins: “Why do they call you Red?”
Morgan Freeman: “Maybe it’s cause I’m Irish.”
THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION
I was about to say that . Morgan Freeman has some white blood in his past too. He is not pure black, few African Americans are.
Morgan Freeman is only hurting himself with this racism. Most white people had a great deal of respect for him. Now they are finding out he is just another racist black.
Alan Keyes. Couldn’t get a single black person really interested simply because he ran as a Republican.
“And black Africans laugh at black Americans dressed up in their dashikis and cowry shell necklaces and other Africanoid clothing thinking they are celebrating their heritage.”
Like that phoney-baloney, idiotic Kwanzaa-Krap?
I havent watched a Rock Hudson movie since I found out he was queer.
Watching him making love to Doris day is more than I can stand when I know he was a poofter.
Same for Jodie Foster. No longer watch her movies.
There’s no bigot like an old bigot. Somebody had to step in for Sheriff Andy.
Yes, Moron Freeman id ‘down for the struggle’ enjoying his little cottage in da hood. Charleston, Miss.
He's really lost it if blacks are pointing out his white half.
Obama is possibly the only genuine AFRICAN-AMERICAN in the US.
Almost none of them in the US have even been to Africa, nor have their parents.
Obama is both an American, and a Foreign Exchange Student from somewhere actually in the country of Africa.
